Unbeaten and unscored upon through the season’s first three games, the Colorado women’s soccer team looks to keep its solid start rolling Friday afternoon with the program’s first contest against Texas-San Antonio. A look at the matchup:
Texas-San Antonio at Colorado soccer
Kickoff: Friday, 4 p.m., Prentup Field.
Records: UTSA 2-1-0; CU 2-0-1.
Leaders: UTSA — Goals: F Lexi Bolton, Fr., 2; Assists: MF Channing Machen, Jr., and X Brittany von Schneidau, Jr., 1. Goalie: Michelle Cole, Sr., 0.33 goals-against average, .923 save percentage. Colorado — Goals: F Tatum Barton, Jr., 4; Assists: MF Taylor Kornieck, Jr., 5; Goalie: JJ Tompkins, Jr., 0.00 goals-against average, 1.000 save percentage; Scout Watson, Sr., 0.00 goals-against average, 1.000 save percentage.
Notes: Through the first two weekends of the season, Barton is one of 26 players in the nation to tally four goals. The Littleton native is the only Pac-12 Conference player in that group…Kornieck begins the week as one of just four players in the nation with five assists. That total surpasses each of Kornieck’s single-season assist totals from her first two seasons. She set a school record with four assists in last week’s win against Missouri…Another shutout would give the Buffs four consecutive shutouts for the seventh time in program history…UTSA opened the season with a 1-0 win against Northwestern State and is coming off a 2-0 win against Oral Roberts. In between those matches the Roadrunners suffered a 1-0 loss against Texas State…The Buffs complete a run of four consecutive home games at noon Sunday against Iowa State.
